In the Greek language, “Zoe” is more than just a cute name; it literally translates to “life.” That’s a fitting moniker for the owner of Zoes Kitchen, Zoe Cassimus, given that she breathed life into the menu of Greek cuisine that kitchens all over the country now craft.
Greek by heritage, Zoe enlisted her family’s history when she designed the menu for the original Zoes Kitchen. Today, the chain has spread to include more than 100 locations all over the country—including one in Bryn Mawr not far from Radwyn Apartments. Make the short trip there to taste Zoe’s Mediterranean-inspired fare, which ranges from flat-grilled chicken over orzo to steak kabobs with roasted veggies. For health-conscious diners, stick to the vegetarian, gluten-free, or low-calorie dishes. The tomato bisque or chicken and orzo soup will only cost you 140-270 calories apiece, and they boast the same complex flavors as higher-calorie dishes.
